Catching up a bit more: Architectural Details & Celebrate

Architectural Details

Close-up of the porch of Strasbourg Cathedral in Alsace, France. It's actually one of my oldest shots, taken sometime in the mid-80s with my mother's small old simple camera which didn't even have an exposure meter. I was only in my teens, but already preferred to take a bit more unusual shots of the typical tourist sights. *g*

Celebrate

Sunday before last, we visited the local Highland Games. They're well established by now, but it still amazes me that we're having these in Germany, and that things exist like a local Pipe & Drum band and you can buy a kilt in the next village over. What I love most about these games, though, is that dozens of people from Central Europe are coming here together to celebrate a culture that's not their own, and with such an enthusiasm. For our games are a relatively small affair, and very likely about the only people from the British Isles were the guys of the Irish Band playing in the evening. *g*
